What does the name Hoki mean?

Inspiriert von japanischen Zen-Mönchen die seit Jahrhunderten rVNS-Atmung nutzen

Hōki is the further development of the Japanese and ancient Chinese Shakuhachi longitudinal flute.

The bamboo flute now known as the shakuhachi was developed in Japan in the 16th century and is called the fuke shakuhachi. A bamboo flute known as the Kodai Shakuhachi, very different from the current Shakuhachi style, was introduced to Japan from China in the 7th century (Hōki is the name of this Japanese era - hence our name) and died out in the 10th century . After a long blueprint, the Hitoyogiri shakuhachi appeared in the 15th century, and in the 16th century the Fuke shakuhachi was developed in Japan, which flourished in the 18th century during the Edo period.

The Komusō monks naturally used the Shakuhachi as an instrument but also for meditation and Zen practice. Even back then, the monks appreciated the relaxing effect of long exhalations.

The mechanism of the hōki is based on the basic function of the shakuhachi.
